Quality, the environment, safety and welfare at work have always been essential elements in the functioning of the Institute. Until now these principles were implemented in an informal way. In order to enforce them, it seemed appropriate to take it to the next level by describing and documenting our daily activitiesin as much detail as possible.
As such, in the context of continuous improvement of our activities, the Board of Directors of the RSBIN has decided on January 8, 2014 to provide our Institute with an integrated Quality-Environment-Safety management system, certified according to the requirements of ISO 9001, the European demand 1221/2009 (EMAS) and the requirements of OHSAS 18001 for our site “Vautierstraat”. For the Quality segment all activities of the general direction, the directorate support services and the scientific collections & archives are considered. For the Environment and Safety segments all activities of the whole institute are included.
In December 2015 we obtained our certification for ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 (EMAS-registration) for the period 2015-2018. Please find below the links to the different certificates and our environmental declaration (in Dutch and French).
